76ers and forward Christian Wood have reached agreement on deal for rest of the season, league sources tell The Vertical. No future years.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) April 6, 2016
The 20-year-old Wood has been back and forth between the Sixers and their D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers, for most of the season. He recently signed a ten-day contract with Philadelphia on March 27 but will now stay with the team for the final four games of the season. He's appeared in 16 total NBA games, averaging 3.3 points and 2.1 rebounds in 7.8 minutes. The former UNLV standout hasn't appeared for the Sixers since their 100-85 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on March 29th.
As Hoops Rumors notes, the Sixers will have the ability to make Wood a restricted free agent by extending a qualifying offer by June 30.
